U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of New York

ALBANY, NEW YORK – Scarlet Shadows, a/k/a “Dragongurl69,” age 33, of West Rutland, Vermont, was sentenced today to 135 months in prison for attempted enticement of a minor.  United States Attorney Carla B. Freedman and Craig L. Tremaroli, Special Agent in Charge of the Albany Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), made the announcement.

As part of her previously entered guilty plea, Shadows, formerly known as Randy Emillion Goodreau, admitted that she attempted to entice and coerce an individual, whom Shadows believed to be an 11-year-old girl, to have sex.  After weeks of exchanging sexually explicit text messages with this individual and another person Shadows believed was the child’s guardian, Shadows traveled in January 2022 from Vermont to Warren County, New York, with an engagement ring, condoms and gifts for the child, intending to have sex with the child.  

United States District Judge Anne M. Nardacci also imposed a 15-year term of post-imprisonment supervised release.  Shadows is required to register as a sex offender upon release from prison.

This case was investigated by the FBI Albany’s Child Exploitation Task Force, which includes members of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, including the Colonie Police Department, Rotterdam Police Department, and the New York State Police.  Assistant United States Attorney Joshua R. Rosenthal prosecuted this case as part of Project Safe Childhood.

Launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice, Project Safe Childhood is led by United States Attorney’s offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS).  Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.  For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit
